I guess I am not quite as terrific as I think I am. I found Will Leitch’s Black Table over at Baseball Musings, as Will has put together a preview of the upcoming season, team by team. The interesting thing about his preview is that he has chosen a blog for each team (David says he chose the best for each team) as your source for following the team. Just click on the photos, and away you go.
Well, OBM missed the cut. Now, I’m not an arrogant asshole (at least not all the time), and I know that Jay is a terrific writer, he’s in my roster of Giants blogs. I just felt that I had established myself as the Giants source in the baseball blogosphere. I believe that I am the longest running Giants site that has posted so frequently (barring the several months my site was down due to technical problems). I am fairly certain that I have a reputation as a good writer, I am fairly certain that I have earned a fair amount of respect in the blogosphere. Almost all the writers who did make the cut are the guys who started around the same time I did, they’re guys who have been linking to me since day one, guys like Gleeman, Belth, Ruzich, Manaprin, Bethke, Cossette…. These are my goomba’s, for crying out loud. Everybody but me? How did that happen?
Am I wrong here? Is OBM less of a player than I think? Anyone care to talk back about this, I am all ears. Let me know if I am smoking my own dope or what, because knowledge is power, and if I need to step it up, well, tell me so.
